Blue Blue Girl by jesika
Clear

A female Common Blue.
Two generations a year, possibly three in the south.
Each butterfly may live three weeks.
Blue Blue Boy is the glorious male.
Wingspan 35mm .
Caterpillars eat any plants of the pea family so the species is widespread, but declining in numbers.
Olympus C740 UZ

This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, love.
Hafiz حافظ

Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.
Saadi

“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
—Saadi (1184–1283)

It’s such a wet & miserable day and I haven’t seen one of these beauties this year, so another chance to view one of nature’s treasures.

I’m a successful failure:
Failed domestic goddess;
Photography flop
but a
BRILLIANT doggie mummy!
Dos this mean I’m a FAILED failure???

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Free your mind – and think.

    You have a gift with butterflies, Jesika. They must sense your love and hover trustingly for you to get their photos. This is so lovely.
